Hot air

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A man in a hot air balloon, realising he was lost, reduced altitude and spotted a woman below. He descended further and shouted to the lady, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago but I don't know where I am"

    The woman below replied, "You're in a hot air balloon, hovering
    approximately 30 feet above the ground. You're between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude."

    "You must work with computers." said the balloonist.

    "Actually I do," replied the woman, "How did you know?"

    "Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you have told me is
    technically correct but I've no idea what to make of your information and the fact is I'm still lost. Frankly, you've been as helpful as a chocolate teapot. If anything, you've delayed my trip."

    The woman below responded, "You must be an Army Officer."

    "I am," replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?"

    "Well," said the woman, "you don't know where you are or where you're going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise, which you've no idea how to keep and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met but now, somehow, it's my f**king fault!”
